Emmanuel Kanu has met with his elder brother, Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), one month after the latter was re-arrested and repatriated to Nigeria.
Emmanuel met with his younger brother at the headquarters of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja on Monday, thereby becoming the first family member the IPOB leader has been allowed to see.
Speaking in an interview, the younger Kanu said his brother “is in high spirit”, adding that he (Nnamdi) appreciates the effort of his supporters across the world.
”He’s in his spirit and appreciates all the support from all Biafrans home and abroad,” Emmanuel told the Vanguard.
Kanu’s younger brother also said that his brother urged all Biafrans to keep the Biafran spirit alive, expressing optimism that the Biafra Republic will soon be restored irrespective of the antics of the enemies.
He also appealed to the Nigerian authorities to grant his brother access to his personal physicians and called on the international community to prevail on the Federal Government to free his brother so that he could reunite with the family.
